ESPI Public Reports
ESPI Springer Briefs
Similarly to ESPI Public Reports, ESPI Springer Briefs offer in-depth perspectives and ESPI independent views on a specific space policy issue. The series, edited by ESPI and published by Springer Publications, covers various space-related domains including space policy and strategy, space law and regulatory frameworks, space diplomacy and international relations, space economy or space security among others.
Each ESPI Springer Brief explores an important area of space policy development, provides a comprehensive overview of the state of affairs and offers an expert analysis of issues at stake and of implications for the space sector. Information, data and positions provided in ESPI Springer Briefs are the result of a thorough background research including extensive literature review and key stakeholders and experts interviews.
Studies in Space Policy
The use of outer space is of growing strategic and technological relevance. Space policy is therefore becoming an issue area of rising importance and visibility. The Studies in Space Policy Series, edited by ESPI and published by Springer Publications, is a European reference book series in this respect. It comprises volumes prepared by ESPI but also provides the opportunity for external researchers to prepare publications and contributions that contribute to the overall ESPI research agenda.
The series is complementary to the Yearbook on Space Policy. In addition to policy related topics concerning governance, international relations or applications, it also highlights cross-disciplinary approaches to topical space issues.
